Very good service. One of the best burgers I've had in a long time, and my husband's fish was great, too. Lots of variety on the menu - something for everyone. It was nice to eat outdoors.

We ate there last week following a heavy rain storm so the place & the surrounding area was completely empty (outside seating). The service was very good. But overall the food was just ok, nothing special.
We ordered the rib eye & a fish dish & were just ok. The veggies were very plain & over-steamed. Great baked potato. My margarita tasted more like a mix than fresh. Perhaps on a less soggy day it would have been a little nicer...Good location and prices about right for the area.

Family evening meal here. The food was OK .... the 'famous nachos' were no better than we had had at many other places and we found the entrees limited in choice and overpriced for what they were. The jerk chicken had no real jerk flavour.

We had a shared half plate nachos , 3 entrees and a pizza with soft drinks and it was almost $120 which I consider poor value for this type of restaurant.

One final thing, in 3 weeks of eating out in Florida on this vacation this was the only restaurant to automatically build in an 18% gratuity for a party of 4.

We will not be back.

Tasty citrus chicken wrap. It was big enough to split. Fun atmosphere and good entertainment. Service was just OK.
